A general partnership within Switzerland is a business owned by two or more partners having unlimited liability. Partners must be Swiss citizens. A general partnership must be mandatorily enrolled at the Chamber of Commerce.

A foreign company can establish a subsidiary office within Switzerland for increasing the range of its products or services within the country. The parent company of the foreign entity is responsible for the cost of the branch; however, because a branch office falls under Swiss laws, it shall be classified as a Swiss company.
